Dave, I noticed another established (!) session guy in the vid from Irvine with the Darling: The second drummer (your right, stage left), Jim Keltner ! Further down that YouTube page is a clip from 'Later with Jools Holland' where JM's playing a Wolf.

Ah hah! That makes sense that it was Keltner. He's awesome, although I've never seen him play live or even a video of him, despite decades of listening to his playing.

I have a friend who has the same Silvertone as John Hiatt in that video; such a nice guitar...some of those old Harmony's were so good, and the old Kay's too (I have one) but other models were poo...Tony.

What sonicus said... great band, and looks like it would be a fun gig for a bass player. They remind me of something else, just can't put a finger on it. Anyway, they surely compliment each other well as a band. Easy to see they've been together a while.

As an aside, I've been trying since yesterday evening to figure out if that Martin guitar is a D-18 Golden Era, or Authentic Series. I'm guessing it's a GE. Definitely looks like an Adirondack top, and the long bridge saddle suggests it must be one or the other... the pickguard is throwing me off though. Maybe it was changed?

Great band! The sound reminds me of a band we have up here called Blue Rodeo, although they don't have a female singer. The mix though, and the sound generally.

I just received the "Anthology of American Folk Music", a six CD version of the original collection of recordings put together by Harry Smith and released in 1952. Among others, Dylan, Garcia,and Hunter have acknowledged the Anthology as seminal in their development. I'm currently listening the CD's 1&2, "Ballads". 3&4 are "Social Music" and 5&6 are "Songs". Altogether a total of eighty-four recordings from the 1920's and early 1930's.

Oh yea, and Nicki Bluhm is excellent!

Here's Nicki Bluhm with Phil Lesh, Scott Law, Jackie Greene and more doing Free Man In Paris.

Nicki's band is the one that made those really cool videos of them riding down the highway singing covers, like this one: I Can't Go For That.

Wolf; one of the things that impresses me most about Phil is that it seems to me that he is always trying to get better, in both his playing and his singing. And in this video, it looks to me like he's once again pushing his own boundaries, playing what I think of as a difficult piece, for what looks to quite possibly be the first time, in a live situation. And having loads of fun all at the same time.

And another thing, while I'm thinking out loud; he is introducing us to a lot of really cool younger musicians, giving them well deserved opportunities, and probably teaching them a thing or two along the way.

Dave , Quite certainly ,Phil and that collection of players with Nicki Bluhm did a great job of Free Man in Paris and Nicki sang it wonderfully and they made it their own with Jam Band Grateful Dead style from my perspective. I really liked what they did with it .

As far as Phil introducing young players to us I think is an awesome tradition among great artists such as Mr. Charlie Parker introducing and inviting a young Miles Davis to play with him. Later Mr. Miles Davis introduced us to John McLaughlin and Darryl Jones and several other players . It is such a nice thing for a seasoned accomplished musician to do.

"Shadows and Light" is an old time favourite of mine :-) I specially enjoy the "joke" they do on "In France they kiss at main street", where, after Pat´s solo, they play an insinuation of Metheny´s "Phase Dance"... delightful! And an awesome performance, all of it!

Good stuff...a LOT of ACOUSTIC amps up there in that gig...I love my 370; seriously, I've played a number of gigs using more modern solid state amps (Gallien Krueger, etc.) and they don't have the balls of my 370; I'd like some amp geek to explain why to me...

What I am listening to now is rehearsal recordings; some amazingly angry versions of songs; clearly the tensions of each member needed a release...someone recently described our sound as Killdozer mixed with Goddo; a mind-bending mix but perhaps the closest peg yet...Tony

Chris Thile.

I had the pleasure of meeting and playing music with this gentleman when he was a prodigious teenager, not so many years ago... a once-in-a-generation musical mind, and a class act.

This Bach piece seems to fit well with the recent direction of the "listening" thread.

Christine Perfect - The Complete Blue Horizon Sessions. http://youtu.be/ub-asknyxtc

Somewhat by contrast - I'm going to see her perform with Fleetwood Mac tomorrow night in North Carolina... never saw them with Chris before, having missed my chance in 1997. Always loved her smoky lounge singer's voice. Anyway, I managed to get seats right on eye level with a clear view of her ex-husband John's bass rig. =)

A really good video of " The Faces " :

There are many good views of Ronnie Lane's Zemaitis Bass .
This was 1972 and custom hand made instruments like our Alembic's were rare birds !

I really liked Ronnie Lanes Musicianship . He left us WAY before his time !

Dub Like An Antelope-Legends of Reggae Play The Music of Phish.

It's Xander's favorite, especially Bouncing Around the Room, so we listen to it at least twice a day. It's got some great performers on it: Chalice, Steel Pulse, Toots, Chinna Smith, etc. Interesting to hear these songs with people who can REALLY sing.

Now that Xander's figuring out how to use a computer, life is getting more interesting.

That recording that Edward put up is exactly the one I was listening to. What a miracle. there is another Youtube audio out there of Clarence noodling backstage on his Tele, just warming up - easy to find, and absolutely devastating. As my big brother says, if you want to know how all of the country rock of the 70s got started, listen to that!

Saw the Hardanger Fiddle on Antique's Roadshow last night.
8 string fiddle from Norway, 4 playable strings like a standard fiddle and then 4 sympathetic strings that run underneath the fingerboard.

One of those came through the shop a few years ago where I was working as an apprentice... hands down, that's gotta' be the strangest thing I ever worked on. IIRC, it was a 9 or 10-string too, not as insanely ornate as many are. There's not much I could compare the sound to... and that's saying a little bit, having been around fiddle music for my entire life.

Cool find Paul! Love the Roadshow. Couple of those guys are neighbors of mine, if you ever see Will and Ken Farmer on there. They often appraise musical instruments.

She's just wonderful. Have you heard Too Repressed? Who knew such things went on in the bluegrass world!

Here we are in the peaceful aftermath of the infamous destruction at Delfest.



By destruction, I mean, this is what our set looked like. For the whole 90 minutes:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xIu5iZJxbTI

70mph winds and hail. By the time it was over, Vince Herman, who was behind the stage keeping the amps from blowing over, was waist deep in ice water. I thought he was going to suffer hypothermia for sure (the temp dropped from the mid 80s to the mid 60s in nothing flat).

But, I digress. Listening to my recording of Fareed Haque and Tony Monaco from last Thursday night. Burning.

On a completely different bent, and yes, it's a bit bent, there's this slowed down masterpiece:

Very interesting . I have heard that Dolly Parton was one of Jerry Garcia's favorite vocalists phrasing wise .

For bluegrass music fans here at the Alembic Club, if you'll permit me a shameless plug... one of my good friends and former band-mates is (one of) the owners/partners at http://bluegrasstoday.com/

He's grown that thing from the ground up... it's absolutely *the* clearing house for everything that's anything to do with that particular genre' of music, and often those peripheral to it.

Most of you guys and girls know, bluegrass and rock, particularly the music that emerged from the folk boom, and that of bluegrass' 2nd generation of players, are inextricably related, having met up while travelling the same pathways in the late 1960's.

I really like this !
I think Anna , who is sings the lead and is playing the Hurdy-Gurdy is Really awesome . This is all in Swiss -German . A dialect of the Germanic languages . it is quite special in its own right . I understand and speak various German dialects.

Wolf, I really like that version of The Call of the Mountains, in found it interesting how the fiddle player holds the bow away from the frog.

Here's one with a bluegrass theme.

From Merlefest; Nickel Creek, The Lighthouse's Tale.

I don't consider myself much of a romantic, but the story that this lighthouse speaks of gets to me every time.

Austin City Limits from 2-25-13 (Esperanza Spalding) and 2-2-14 (1st half Sara Jarosz, 2nd half The Milkcarton Kids). In a desolate soundscape of Justin Gaga Swift drival and thumpity-thimp clamor, they give me hope!

Thanks Dave, that's good stuff there... hard to go wrong between those two gals. Love(d) Crooked Still in the heyday, Aoife was a perfect fit. And Sara, we'll there's all kinda' "Songs Up In Her Head". =)

For this Easter Sunday, I've been listening to (and playing along with) Alison Krauss & The Cox Family's "I Know Who Holds Tomorrow". Alison's brother Viktor really shines on bass for several cuts. By contrast, Union Station bassist Barry Bales is a master of leaving the perfect amount of space between on the slower tempo numbers. Absolute monster players, both.

Listened to Tut's set from the 2011 John Hartford Festival last night to honor his passing. Planning to pull out some of the LPs later. He left behind an amazing legacy of music...

Went to NIU's annual World Music concert today.
2 gamelon ensembles; check (why I went)
Brazilian drum line; check
Middle Eastern string ensemble; check (piano, 3 violins, a viola, 3 cellos, a guitar, 2 ouds, a flute, a tar, a cajone, & a tamborine)
Mongolian throat singer; check - wait, what?!?! I've heard of it, but this is the first time I've heard it. Freakin' amazing! Cat was bowing a 3-stringed, lap-held fiddle of sort, while at the same time, with his throat (duh - thus the name), he

1) Did a raspy/humming bass line
2) Did a baritone line with the same timbre that moved in parallel, and
3) Did a very intricate whistling melody up around 2nd soprano

Yes, that's one voice, three simultaneous vocal parts; if I hadn't been sitting there watching, I would have wagered cash money it was at overdubbed. Did I mention amazing?

Cool! I met Devin maybe ten years ago with my friend Geoff; he used to manage a rehearsal studio where Strapping Young Lad played...so we're on our way to the bar after work and come across Devin sitting on a rock in a vacant lot about 2 blocks from that space; he was just watching the world go by i guess (a busy intersection) and he seemed to have no good story for being there other than to watch man/Ants at work...a funny meeting but even in that short interaction you could tell he was odd in a fun way...Tony.

One of the advantages that comes from running around playing music with my friends' kids (Mom swears I'm trying to get waived into Gen Y) is being exposed to music I would not have discovered independently.

So lately, singer/songwriter Raina Rose came up in our band's Friday night creative circle... here's a tune from a collaborative album I found to be just irresistible. Especially the bass line. =)

Just came home from watching Faith No More; great show with amazing sound...my friend who I went with asked me how they write and arrange those songs; i told him I had no idea as I don't have the knowledge of all those styles of music, let alone how to make them mesh...truly amazing...Tony
